It's a minor dilemma faced by preteen girls and their moms. The cute little-girl décor is outgrown. Big decorating dreams take hold - and can become an obsession. Moms want to keep costs down - and to teach daughters proper values while encouraging creativity.
The Girl's Guide to Your Dream Room by Sherry Kyle is a welcome gift for both girls and moms. Full of fun stories, cute pictures, decorating tips, quizzes, and crafts, this book will engage girls. (It engaged the little girl inside me!) The stories and activities guide tween girls through budgeting and planning their room makeover - in an economical, practical, and creative way. Girls are taught basic home decorating, even how to use graph paper to design.
Moms will love how the stories and tips enforce biblical principles of frugality, compassion, encouragement, and obedience - without ever sounding preachy.
If the tween girl in your life is itching for a bedroom makeover, you'll both love The Girl's Guide to Your Dream Room!
